1917” and “Ford v Ferrari” split the top sound editing prizes Sunday night at the 67th annual MPSE Golden Reel Awards at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel. “1917” took Dialogue/ADR and “Ford v Ferrari” scored for Effects/Foley. The Elton John musical fantasy, “Rocketman,” earned Musical honors and “Jojo Rabbit” topped Music Underscore.

The other Feature awards went to “Parasite” (Foreign Language), “Toy Story 4” (Animation), and “Echo in the Canyon” (Documentary).

This sets up a competitive sound editing Oscar race between Sam Mendes’ innovative, continuous-shot World War I drama and James Mangold’s thrilling race car biopic. “The absence of visible edits meant it would have been easy to be overwhelmed with sound at times, never being able to cut to a different location to reset,” said Oliver Tarney, supervising sound editor of “1917.” “We worked hard at making sure there were always multiple layers of detail in the work we were doing. We had to make sure the audience wouldn’t get fatigued. We built in a softer soundscape after each of the larger events so that we could build the tension up.”

Meanwhile, “Ford v Ferrari’s” climactic 24 Hours of Le Mans circa 1966 offered a 40-minute tour de force that served as a mini-movie: “We threw out the production sound,” said David Giammarco, the sound designer. “But when we got the real GT40, it helped inform the cut because it has its own signature [sound], and you want to wind it out and feel the whole length of it. Sometimes they would cut the shot to match the engine whine. And sometimes you hear the engine and score [from Marco Beltrami and Buck Sanders] playing together almost at the same chord.”

Oscar-nominated producer (“Little Women”) Amy Pascal presented the 2020 MPSE Filmmaker Award to Marvel Studios Executive Vice President of Production Victoria Alonso. The 2020 MPSE Career Achievement Award was awarded to Oscar-winning supervising sound editor Cecelia “Cece” Hall (“The Hunt for Red October”).
